Are You Down With Movember?

WHAT IS MOVEMBER

Perhaps you’re not even quite sure what Movember is. Movember is a portmanteau of the word mustache and November and involves an annual, month-long event involving the growing of mustaches, or “Mos,” during the month of November to raise awareness about men’s health initiatives, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

For this purpose, men all over the world have started off this month with baby smooth faces and are growing their Mos throughout the 30 days that follow. The result: To serve as walking educators and virtual mentors raising awareness and research money for the diseases that most affect the male population.

Be sure to check in with us on Facebook and Twitter throughout the month to see the men of Alex and Ani get their Mo on. And remember to have fun with it. Maybe you’re The Regent or perhaps you’re The Undercover Brother. Whatever Mo is most you, we are most grateful for your contribution.

MOVEMBER EVENTS

Kicking off Movember we will be hosting Charmed by Charity events in our NEW Weybosset store in Providence, R.I., and our fabulous Boston, Mass., location on Monday, November 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. (a.k.a. Veteran’s Day — also the launch of our Armed Forces Collection … you might want to sign up for our email list — wink, wink).

Lastly, be sure to check out our very own, Omar Ajaj’s Movember page, where his team has already raised more than $3,000. Wishing you many unshaven days ahead.
